Keir Starmer under fire for “disgusting” and “misleading” Labour attack ad on Rishi Sunak’s crime record

Labour Party’s attack advert on Rishi Sunak slammed as ‘disgusting’ and ‘misleading’ by Conservative MPs


Keir Starmer and the Labour Party have been criticised for their latest attack advert, which accuses UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak of being soft on crime.

The advert features images of convicted criminals alongside claims that Sunak is failing to tackle rising crime rates.


Conservative MPs have condemned the advert as “disgusting” and “misleading”.

Tory MP Robert Halfon said the advert was a “new low” for the Labour Party, while fellow Conservative Andrew Rosindell accused Labour of being “soft on crime and the causes of crime”.

The advert comes after recent reports that crime rates in the UK have been rising, with particular concern over knife crime.

However, the Conservative government has claimed that it is taking action to tackle crime, with new measures such as tougher sentences for violent and sexual offenders.


The Labour Party has defended the advert, saying that it is “right to hold the government to account” over rising crime rates.

A spokesperson for the party said that the advert was based on “real concerns” about crime and the government’s response to it.
